Visited here one Saturday evening in October and had a wonderful meal. Local duck breast with lentils, vegetables in a damson gravy. All cooked to perfection - very tasy, well presented and a good variety of vegetables. For desert - homemade tarte tatin and icecream. Lovely.

Service was attentive and always with a smile. Really nice atmosphere, probably because every table was booked and the bar area was busy too.

If I am ever in this area again, I would definitely revisit.

We have eaten here on a few occasions and have been pleased with the food but not enough to leave a review.

This visit merits one though.

Its gone from over complicated half fine dinning, half pub food with no identity, all the effort in the world on presentation and not an ounce on flavor.

Now its a nice even spread with good cooking, faster service.

This is not a drop in standard, this is good food cooked properly and not waiting 30 min for you main course to arrive.

All me and my wife can say is Keep up the good work and congratulations on getting back your identity.

This pub is a must now and folks, you will not be disappointed :)

Keep up the good work Dan

Stumbled upon this little gem of a pub near ledbury. Little pricey but we'll worth it . We sat at about 8:30 and had a fish platter to start which was well presented. For mains we had beautiful pork belly and the most perfectly cooked salmon main course I've ever eaten . Apparently this place had no accolades so good luck to our next restaurant we visit because the oak inn ledbury is really punching above it's weight.
I would like to say a big thanks to hydon ? For his good humor at the bar and service.

A warm welcome, lovely beer, full bodied smooth and inexpensive red wine. Great atmosphere with friendly locals and staff.

Well presented freshly made beautiful soup with 'just baked' bread and unusual but tasty sweetcorn fritters with a chilli dip.

Followed by tender and full flavoured roast beef with crispy roast potatoes and a selection of fresh vegetables cooked and seasoned to perfection.

And for pud... a perfect creme brulee which was big enough for two!

All absolutely spot on. A most memorable meal and certainly far superior to most we have experienced in either a pub or restaurant for many years. In fact, I can't recall enjoying a better Sunday lunch.

Thank you to all at The Oak.

If you want a show while eating your beautifully cooked food then this is the place for you. I had the skate with red cabbage, brown shrimp sauce, stunning! The hubby had lamb shoulder, described as "heaven" by a very satisfied man. We spoke to the Very pleasant head chef from a small village in Wales and could of chatted all night.
No 1 in ledbury and a must visit !!

well done the oak team :-)
